 (2) Notwithstanding Section 48200, a pupil shall be excused from
school in order to participate with a not-for-profit performing arts
organization in a performance for a public school pupil audience for
a maximum of up to five days per school year provided the pupil’s
parent or guardian provides a written note to the school authorities
explaining the reason for the pupil’s absence.

   (b) A pupil absent from school under this section shall be
permitted to complete all assignments and tests missed during the
absence that can be reasonably provided and, upon satisfactory
completion, shall be given full credit therefor. The teacher of any
class from which a pupil is absent shall determine, pursuant to the
regulations of the governing board of the school district, or the
county board of education, what assignments the pupil shall make up
and in what period of time the pupil shall complete those
assignments. The tests and assignments shall be reasonably equivalent
to, but not necessarily identical to, the tests and assignments that
the pupil missed during the absence.
